Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since we last updated. I've been meaning to for awhile, but it seemed like things just kept coming up, like the two weeks in January, everyone in our little family got a really bad flu bug, which I wouldn't wish on anyone! Also, someone, who wishes not to be named (but it wasn't me), lost our camera card with all of our Christmas pictures on it, and me being the kinda neurotic person I am, can't blog out of order, so we've been trying to find the card so we can post. We found our small card with the last couple days of our vacation on it, so I guess it'll do, on to the update, and I'll try to make it quick and get onto the pictures.
Christmas was great, all because we were able to go back home to Utah for three weeks! It was so great to see all of our family and friends and the mountains again : ) Christmas was great, we had Christmas Eve dinner with my family, and then we slept at Steve's parent's house, which was fun because 7 of the 8 kids in his family slept over! It was crazy but so much fun, especially with all the grandkids! We also had pictures taken of all the Rogers grandkids together, plus family pictures, which were freezing, but fun. We were also able to go skiing and after the first bumpy run it was a lot of fun and a beautiful day! One of the most exciting things that happened while we were there, was that my sister Amber and her husband and kids were able to be sealed in the temple. It was such an amazing experience, especially seeing Ryleigh and Braydon walk into the sealing room and seeing them kneel all together around the altar. I'm so happy for them and love them so much! Some other fun things that we did was go to the aquarium, which the kids absolutely loved, went sledding and played in the snow, (while we were there, it snowed more than I think it had since we moved there), and went to the Body Exhibit that was in Salt Lake (so interesting! but I'm into that kind of stuff). Overall, we had the best time, and we owe it all to our families! We love you guys!
Since we've been home, we all got sick, Steve started school and entered a client-counseling competition at school with our friend James, (the same partner from his other competition), and they WON Again!! So exciting! So they were able to go to Milwaukee and compete in Regionals, and they're automatically going to Regionals next year and are in charge of the competition at the UofI next year. So that left a weekend where I was all by myself with the kids, which was filled with lots of playdates and dinners with friends, and one eventful day at church with Monica (James' wife) and their girls! Valentines Day was so fun, we ate at this great resteraunt called Bacaro, and it was delicious! And we were able to go do some shopping without having to spend twenty minutes getting kids in and out and pushing an incredibly huge stroller around! It was heaven!
